In A Stew

So you’ve worried yourself into a stew and now what can you do? You’re exhausted and turned upside down, inside out and wrong side in. Has it helped? Face it, beautiful soul, nothing was accomplished by your fretting because nothing ever is. Jesus Himself, told us so in His own words in Matthew 6:27, when He asked His listeners a pointed question ~ “Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” So the words from our Savior and Lord ring in our ears and we still don’t get it because we just can’t turn that issue over and relinquish control. Somehow we so falsely believe that worry is power over our problem and so we keep the stew a bubblin’ and the energy levels drop dead at our feet as we drag our worries to every corner of the planet. Our enemy is out to bring us to defeat and wherever we go, we’ll find that crazy worry just beats us there to beat us up, to laugh in our faces and defy our trust in the God we say we believe in and the God who cares so deeply for us.

Oh, these moments are moments for your beautiful soul to take a stand against the enemy and inhale God’s grace and let the depth and the height of His sovereign power sink into your heart and mind. These are the moments to reach out to the Lord of our lives, our Salvation Giver, our Provider, and our sustainer through all things. These are the moments to just fall into a simple child-like trust and trust Him! Cast your burden on the God who has your back. Nothing will touch you that He hasn’t ordered and if He orders it and brings you to it, you can know, that you know, that you know, that He will bring you through it!

1 Peter 5: 6 7 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.…

Don’t let him get to you through worry!

Sweet Soul Refreshment

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So when it’s all said and done, sometimes you just can’t undo it and sometimes you don’t have to! It’s really ok because sometimes it just needs to be said and done. So, for today just relax, and sit back to rest in the thought that God’s angels are all about you and all around you and on your every side of life to just be there when the going gets tough and where the rubber meets the road. Yes, you are covered and not one weapon formed against you will succeed. Isaiah 54: 17 reminds us of that in one of my favorite verses ~ that, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

So, beautiful soul ~ you have a rich heritage in God’s protection. You are clothed in His righteousness and His strength and He will stand with you and for you against any one who rises up against you.  See how strong you are in Christ! Just breathe in deeply and inhale the sweet, grace of God’s love and exhale praise to the God who carries your cares in His sovereign hand of divine protection from the elements of your journey.

Come apart sweet and beautiful soul to a place of quiet solace and refuge, where our sovereign, gracious God serves the refreshment of Living Water to the weary and oppressed. Drink deeply of it and be refreshed in your spirit, and find healing for your soul.
